Reward Being Offered For ‘National Anthem’ NASCAR Car Stolen From Cracker Barrel Parking Lot
While Alexander Rossi’s tires being stolen was a prank, unfortunately, NASCAR driver Kyle Weatherman’s No. 47 Chevrolet Camaro that went missing from a Cracker Barrel parking lot was not.
A Georgia thief took off with a NASCAR team’s truck and trailer with the Xfinity Series race car inside. The Mike Harmon Racing team was on its way back to North Carolina from Daytona, FL, over the weekend when it stopped in Kingsland, GA and left its trucks in a Cracker Barrel parking lot.
The restaurant’s surveillance video shows someone getting in the silver 2000 Ford F-350 and fiddling with the ignition before pulling onto I-95 south. In the trailer being towed by the F-350 was the No. 47 Chevrolet Camaro of Kyle Weatherman, who finished 17th in the Daytona Road Course race. The thief did, however, leave behind a second truck and trailer hauling the team’s other car.
The car is known as the National Anthem car due to its display of a distinctive “We Stand for the National Anthem” livery. A police report was filed and put the value of the items stolen at $400,000.
Harmon says the team still plans to field two cars at this weekend’s event and is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the recovery of the vehicles.
